Cartography has become a central theme in contemporary culture, thanks to the revolution represented by Google Maps and the new needs it has aroused. The Master Class questions how to develop new cartographical products, foreseeing new uses and applications of them, making the exploration of contemporary cities easier, more pleasant and engaging.
